Why Did I Lose?I was at the Silver Slipper in Vegas in 1980 one evening with the Bosses daughter and after playing some slots a few hands of black Jack we went over to the crap tables and when the dice came to me I played $2 on the pass line and started rolling. I rolled 27 straight passes and they changed everyone on the table 3 times. I let the $2 run and as I started to make some dough I started to add money to the odds and so on. What I want to know is why with tens of thousands on the table, when I crapped out I did not win?
Seems to me I should have walked away with at least $20,000 or so because the guy 2 down from me won over $25,000 on my roll.
There are a couple of things that are interesting about this also. I was calm as could be and except for a little sweat in the palm of my hands. In addition, for many of my rolls, I would say something like: "We need a 4. Here's a 4" Roll the dice and up it would come. It was magic and drove the other players and the table people, wild.
I don't gamble any more, unless you call playing in the market as gambling.
For all who do gamble. May you have the same play in some form someday.
This will be my only post on this site and I hope you enjoy this true story.
Oh, The bosses daughter. A great gal who said I should have taken money off the table when I was way ahead and of course she said it after we had crapped out.
Happy Thanksgiving !
I don't know. Did you press aggressively but at the wrong time, like make $2 bets throughout and then suddenly jump to max odds right before you sevened out? That would make you a loser.
Oftentimes I'll be playing (pl+come+max odds every roll), and someone will get on a fairly decent roll (maybe 10-15 throws), and I'll actually LOSE money. Happens depending on your method of play.
I think it was a joke...and he's saying he started with $2 and never picked it up and just "let it ride" then 7-out when he was at the max...in effect "not winning"
also not sure what he means unless he was just letting it all ride.

Let me tell you, brother, the dice can go a long time and not hit just the right numbers that you need! And the shooter can win his point, roll a 7 on the come-out and kill a bunch of your big bets you had riding;that roll comes just after you insist you want your odds 'on' [g]
If you use the expression crapped out you are exposing your ignorance of the game and that may be part of the answer to your question.
